this show was what got me interested in south korea,(& now i cant get enough of kpop!) the show even though its categorized as a drama has so many funny points you will find your self rolling around on your couch(or floor) laughing your butt off.

its the perfect blend of drama & comedy & if you get the chance i say watch it. it may seem lame at first but you will warm up to it :)

I bought this on a whim. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to buy it because the description sounded lame, so I watched a short vid on youtube to see if it looked interesting. And it did. I bought it and started watching it with my boyfriend (who doesn't watch kdramas). Oddly enough, my boyfriend loves this show. And I love it too, though its not my favorite (Birth of the Rich is).

To sum it up without giving too much away, a loser of a guy is a loser at 30 years old and applies at this big company who only hire the best accidentally gets hired and theres lots of laughs and some sad moments, but not overdone.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes kdramas or even just likes foreign movies.

I bought this product as a gift for an aunt who is into Korean dramas (Kdramas). She's very particular about the kind of dramas that she watches, avoiding dramas where major characters die and preferring light dramas with regular bits of comedy to break the tension and keep the drama from being too emotionally sapping. Although this drama is a little older than what she was used to, she was really excited to get it after reading it's description and based on other reviews, it was the perfect gift to give (at an affordable price too!)

Dude. Omg. You have to be smoking crack to like this. I suggest to preview the first episode before you buy this.

And I apologize to everyone I just insulted with the crack analogy... but... seriously.... like...... just.......seriously.

Go to Drama Fever, and watch a normal K-Drama's that everybody else watches, and you will be happy with the selection variety.

My wife is Korean, and though I never in my life, ever, ever, ever, wanted to watch a soppy cliched soap opera, whether in English or Korean, I finally relented, on the basis of exposure for language learning.

I'm trying to learn Korean, so I'm watching YouTube episodes of 뽀뽀뽀 and also found a decent action-packed K-Drama called Iris. Believe it or not, it's totally tolerable for a dude to watch. In fact, aside from the 80's synth rock montages with vaseline-lens filters (you KNOW what I'm talking about), it's a pretty good TV show.

On the other hand, THIS Drama, Super Rookie, is.... just unbelievable trash.

This is a fun movie. I had not read any reviews, but I decided to give it a try. It was much better than I anticipated. Have you ever been odd man out in a life situation? This young man falls into the sweet job spot accidently, It is guaranteed to give you a laugh and a cry from time to time. It really is a today type story with so many people in the world out of work. I enjoyed it and recommend it as a different type of movie with a great cast. Being the kind of loser guy, he makes his parents, especially his mother, when he lands this great job...how does he tell them it is a mistake? He can't. He kind of likes where he is at wearing suits and all. On the other hand, he feels guilty for the deception, but it wasn't his fault....it was the fault of, well I do not give away plots. Buy it or watch it on one of the networks that offer viewing. You will enjoy it! I keep checking Amazon's list of Korean dramas, etc. They are doing a great job keeping up and the prices are good too.

Super Rookie is hilarious. Eric Mun portrayed his character well, as did the actors who played his deadbeat but loyal friends. The storyline is simple, "rags to lucking-out" because of a computer error. I enjoyed the way the character - the Super Rookie - stayed grounded no matter the mean digs and attacks on his person by the upper class and the accidental successes he achieved. This drama was fun.
